12:53 pm
july >> any questions? public comment? >> i'd like to bring to the attention to the commissioners one or two points. some 12 years ago the said company was chosen to start work. and then bankruptly the san francisco utilities commission put a stop to it. so i'm happy that the 3 primes are going to give us their best service. another point i want to make is when the task force was formed they worked hard to choose the best location. they were many locations prone
12:54 pm
to flooding. they're looking at a location and hopefully another location where the present asphalt plant is so the best touching facilities when we're talking about digesters this is not a joke. this is something that requires a lot of expertise. so i'm happy and i want to say very publicly and i want to thank doctor jackson especially for promoting and sticking to her guns and allowing this project to start earlier than was planned. and i want to thank those commissioners who heard our plea for spept what the community had
12:55 pm
to say. the stench we want it gone. gone, gone, gone away. the mosquitoes the contamination and the pollution. now i'm speaking as an economist we want it gone. i know this will come before the board of supervisors and their should be no problem for the board of supervisors okaying this project. just like we opened up building 505 that was a legacy when this digester comes on line a legacy for the whole nation. i'm going to watch this project

12:57 pm
community >> anyone else? >> i was looking at the community benefit that were and here i think it's one million dollars over a 10 year period. i don't think that's enough money for the community to be developed for a - where they're given a one million dollars over 10 year period for this facility. i think the community deserves to be represented a little bit better than that to show why to be involved. in they're not developed then the community will definitely be the big loser but i'd like to see the community where they can truly be compensated for being a
12:58 pm
participant in the investment of the digesters >> i want to clarify that. so when we talk about community benefits and sometimes, people definition of community benefits is different than others. but we the consultant who will come on aboard to help us design what are they lifeguard to give to the community that we're trying to serve free of charge. so this is what they plan to give to the community free of how far. it's not what we're giving the puc or anything. that's something if we didn't have the community benefits we wouldn't have gotten this piece of money. so i want to point out this is part of the community policy
12:59 pm
that we put in place and that's what the consultant is willing to give >> in addition to all the other benefits. >> there's going to be the actual puc sitting down with the community and one of the things we're not only doing it with this community but all contracts we ask the consultants what can you do to help serve the community. >> i want to follow up on that, too. and it took quite a bit of work. and it was really have you found as a landmark piece of policy from across the country looking at public utilities.
1:00 pm
i think that money is generous. i would like to commend, you know, and now we have a department set up to implement that policy. we're doing all we can to make sure the community is benefiting from not only the private firms that are contracting with the puc and by the puc. i want to reiterate the importance of that and the commitment of this commission and the entire department >> if i can quickly add. the other thing that a partisans. we're asking everyone who participate what are you willing
